In the 1960s, Jamal Joseph exhorted students at Columbia to burn down their college; today he’s chair of its School of the Arts film division. Joseph, author of Panther Baby, chronicles his personal odyssey, from high-school honor student Eddie Joseph to his introduction to (and eventual leadership of) the Black Panther Party, to sentences at Riker’s Island and Leavenworth, and to the halls of Columbia, illuminating the life of a soldier inside the militant movement— and a life of rebellion and reinvention.
